Did like 4lbs of boneless chicken, salsa, black beans, corn and taco seasoning. Drained most of the beans and all of the corn.

The sauce might be a little runny during cooking but you can always thicken that up when it's done cooking.

Mix a tablespoon of corn starch in a little bit of warm water and stir it in. When I made that chicken recipe, though, I diet have an issue with excess liquid.

Sooo good.

Should have taken a pick before shredding though. There was a lot of liquid left in the pot before I shredded but after adding it back in the chicken just soaked it all up. Thanks for the recipe. Nice and spicy too. Used habanero salsa

bimmer app isn't allowing me to upload a pic

EDIT

Here's a pic

dude, enough of the bullshit! everyone knows you didn't make ****. you owe me $1k.

how do you store all your leftovers? freezer? small containers? i usually just put in fridge and have to eat the same damn thing for a week straight. this weekend i bought some tupperware, so i can freeze smaller portions and eat it over a longer period of time.

Haha yeah I usually store in Tupperware and eat over the next few days. This is a ton of food but it should be gone no problem by Thursday cause I have some friends come over usually to watch tv and eat.

I like to strain the cooking liquid and then just use it to make a sauce from that. I feel like that most things that have cooked for 6, 8, 10 hours, there really isn't that much flavor left in them.

99 cents a pound, I couldn't pass up chicken thighs again. All trimmed and soaking in their wet rub. I wanted to make a chili with brisket but at ~$4 a lb, I passed in favor of making a chicken chili. I have chicken stock, onion, garlic, dried guajillo peppers, dried chile costenos and dried habaneros in the bottom and the chicken on a rack a little off the bottom. I'm gonna do the same thing with the cooking liquid I would as with the pulled chicken but instead of making a BBQ sauce, I'll use it to make a chili base, then add the chicken towards the end of the cooking process. Just to increase volume I'll add beans to this one. Figure I should get 6-8 meals off of a ~$10 investment.

I made gazpacho yesterday:

1 cucumber - 1/4" dice, seeded
2 bell peppers - 1/4" dice, seeded
12 roma tomatoes - 1/4" dice, with juice and seeds (from our garden)
1/2 sweet onion - minced
2 cloves garlic - crushed
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
56 oz tomato juice - canned
salt and pepper to taste
8 ice cubes

mix it all up and let it sit for at least 4 hours for flavors to meld. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil. Soooo good.

so i have a bunch of chicken breasts and tomatoes that i want to get rid of. what's something i can make out of this? i'd be willing to buy some more simple ingredients to add to the mix, obviously.

-1 packet of taco seasoning
-1 can organic black beans (don't drain)
-1-1/2 cups of corn (frozen is fine)
-1 chopped medium yellow onion

Combine all ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours. So, start it in the AM when you are on your way to work. When you come home, take the chicken out and shred it, then return to the pot for ~1hr. Serve with yellow corn tortillas. For salsa we took a red onion and cilantro and chopped it so that it was fine. It was fantastic.
Thank you for this Making it for a second time today.
